Wilson Audio have released more details of their new flagship loudspeaker, the WAMM Master Chronosonic, which costs well over $600,000.

Wilson Audio told us “Dave Wilson recently observed that even if he were an accountant he’d still design and build loudspeakers. It’s in his blood. Even as a young teenager, Dave was obsessed with the sound of live music. He was enthralled with the idea that an audio system—specifically its transducers—could temporarily suspend disbelief, could momentarily convince the listener that what he was hearing was the real thing. He felt compelled to discover the salient factors responsible for believable music reproduction. What was it about certain combinations of drivers, cabinet materials, and even the geometric arrangement of those drivers that produces an intellectually and emotionally convincing verisimilitude of live music? It was Dave’s search for the answers to these questions that ultimately led he and his wife and lifelong business partner Sheryl Lee to form a company they called Wilson Audio”.

Dave’s idealism, passion, and a certain genius for the scientific method fuelled the business. Wilson’s first commercial loudspeaker was the WAMM (Wilson Audio Modular Monitor). The WAMM’s proprietary (and patented) adjustability in the time domain via movable modules was revolutionary. This ability, which enabled proper propagation delay for each installation, has underpinned the inceptional methodology for every large Wilson loudspeaker since”.

It is fitting and perhaps even poetic that after leading the effort for dozens of designs, Dave has come full circle back to his original concept—the WAMM. As most of you know, Dave’s primary focus for the past several years has been the new WAMM Master Chronosonic, a flagship loudspeaker worthy of the original’s legacy”.

The WAMM Master Chronosonic is the most time-domain correct loudspeaker in Wilson’s history. It plums new depth in terms of technology and execution. From drivers to cutting-edge composites, from crossover technology to perfecting geometries. Most importantly, the adjustability in the time domain is precise down to five millionths of a second for any installation—accuracy heretofore only achievable in the theoretical domain.The result is a musical experience with a level of intellectual and emotional verisimilitude only bettered by the live musical event itself. It is a loudspeaker truly worth of the term ‘Magnum Opus’.”

  • Wilson Audio have today released the final prototype pictures of their huge new loudspeakers the Wilson WAMM Master Chronosonic. Wilson Audio say that these are Dave Wilson's 'Magnum Opus' and have taken five years of intense research. Hifi Pig will of course bring you more information as it becomes available.  

  • Watch the new Wilson Audio video, for an introduction to Yvette, which Wilson say is their 'most technically advanced single-enclosure, compact loudspeaker' and draws on their WATT/Puppy which has 'long been touted as the most commercially successful loudspeaker over $10,000 in the history of audio'. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEzow6pwlyA  

  • The Chronosonic XVX builds on Wilson Audio’s former flagship model, the Alexandria XLF. It is the American company’s new flagship, second only to the late Dave Wilson’s magnum opus, the WAMM Master Chronosonic,  which can be built to order for anyone with £700,000 to spend on a pair of loudspeakers. In comparison, the Wilson Audio Chronosonic XVX retails for a…
